How to choose Basin Tapware
There are various ways to go about choosing basin tapware, but the key is choosing the right type of basin tap to suit your design style and application preference that offers excellent quality; this can be somewhat of a challenge.
Basin tapware needs not only to look great but last the test of time. Therefore the quality is just as important as the design.
Types of Basin Tapware
Long gone are the days where basin tapware only comprised of three-piece bench-mounted sets. Today, there is an array of basin tapware types so suit different basin designs, plumbing fixtures, and usability factors.
Basin tapware now offers wall mixer, basin mixer, tall mixer, wall mixer set in addition to traditional three-piece basin sets, which are now the least popular choice. Basin mixers have widely overtaken three-piece basin sets due to their ease of use, simple installation, and modern design. As such, they are available in various formats, including wall and bench-mounted options.
When choosing a type of basin tapware, consider the following:
- Basin: does the basin sit below or above the vanity top? – if it is below, consider a standard mixer or wall mixer; if it is above, consider a tall basin mixer or wall mixer that you can adjust to height. Also, consider whether the basin has tapholes. If it has one taphole, opt for a standard basin mixer; if it has three tapholes, choose a three-piece basin set, and if it has no tapholes, any type of basin tap will be suitable.
- Vanity Size: do you have a small vanity or large vanity? – If it is small, consider a wall mixer set to maximise bench space. If it is large and bench space isn’t an option, any type of basin tap will be suitable.
Basin Tapware Quality
The tapware quality is paramount. You don’t want to have to replace it in 12 months. Therefore, look for basin tapware that is WaterMark approved, made from quality solid brass construction, features a ceramic disc cartridge and offers a 5+ year warranty.

Basin Tapware Design
While important from a visual standpoint, design should be the last consideration for choosing basin tapware. Once you know the type of tapware you want and know it’s of high quality, you can select a design that best matches your bathroom.
Match your basin tapware with other tapware in your bathroom. It should be from the same tapware range and in the same finish as other tapware for the best result.
